Studebaker US6 "Frozen In Time" (Engine Overhaul)
In the summer of 2009 this 1945 Studebaker US6 with its Hercules JXD engine was brought back to life and driven 75 miles back to civilization after being abandoned in the remote Alaskan wilderness and "frozen in time" for two decades. Now in June 2013 the old war horse is getting some much needed TLC and a new lease on life. This truck was built on May 23, 1945.

1910 Thomas Flyer Race Car
This 1910 Thomas Flyer has been restored to run the next Great Race. The car is now painted and made to look like the original 1907 car that won the very first Great Race from New York to Paris. The huge 6 cylinder car underwent a huge restoration to make the 2008 Great Race, before the race was postponed due to complications with the passage through China. The car is now complete, but this video was shot as soon as the car was roadworthy and before it was torn down for final paint and assembly. It was a special day to see this road veteran again blasting around town. These cars are awesome and you forget just how impressive they were until you see this beast roar to life and take to the highways. Time has change the styling of automobiles, but this car is absolutely timeless!





Abandoned relic runs again
Truck comes to life again after sitting abandoned for decades in the heart of the Alaskan wilderness. The engine is the rugged Hercules JXD. The truck was later driven 75 miles back to civilization. Studebaker US6 застывшими во времени Это 1945 Studebaker US6 был оставлен в пустыне Аляски на протяжении двух десятилетий. Это видео, лето 2009 Studebaker US6 возвращается к жизни и отвезли обратно в цивилизацию расстоянии 75 миль. Studebaker US6 получит некоторые восстановления. В настоящее время семь Studebaker US6 грузовики все бегут и дисков. Alaska , God's Country. There are a lot of really good beer drinking stories about lost relics or abandoned treasures in the massive Alaskan wilderness. There are stories of lost gold mines and eccentric miners who vanished or died after burying a cache of gold in the late 1800s or early 1900s that's just waiting for some lucky soul to stumble over. There are dozens stories of wrecked WWII aircraft and one particularly of a crash landed and mostly intact Bell P-39 Air Cobra that is said to have belly landed in eight feet of powdered snow somewhere up around Eureka Summit during the war. The locals however are pretty tight lipped concerning these stories and dont give up their secrets very often , especially to city slickers. Most of these tales are just that, good stories, and are probably based on a grain of truth and nothing more but they make good stories and theyre OUR stories. Myself, Ive always enjoyed hearing the tales and like most folks find my voice raising with each question that I ask in relation to the particular subjects where abouts, knowing full well that the guy telling me the story knows as little as I do. Yet having always been a WWII truck and aircraft enthusiast its easy to get wound up with each telling of a certain story. Ad to it the mystique of the Alaskan wilderness and a possible abandoned gold mine somewhere in the telling and well, its a story worth repeating and maybe even adding one or two of my own personal details to it for good measure. One story that has been around for decades is that of a big game hunting guide that had a place north of Eureka. The story goes that he had a Studebaker US6 from WWII that he used to haul supplies from an air field that is 75 miles out of Eureka. According to the story, the old gentleman had eventually died and the Studebaker had sat abandoned at the remote airstrip ever since. The truck's engine had, had water instead of anti-freeze in it and therefor supposedly froze up with ice and broke the cylinder head. The truck , it is said, is all there and intact. To claim this relic would be simple, all a person would have to do is find a cylinder head for a 1940s Hercules JXD , fly up to the air field that is 75 miles from no where , install the cylinder head and then get a truck running that has sat deteriorating for 20 years in the Alaskan wilderness , have someone fly you gas and beer and then drive a 1945 Studebaker 75 miles back to civilization. Oh and did I mention that there are no roads and plenty of grizzly bears too? That really would make a good story. Well thats just exactly what Robert did. The story of the old truck is true and I loaned him a Hercules JXD cylinder head in August of 2009. Ray has an airplane and flew 'Close Air Support' hauling fuel , beer and moral support from all of us here at home. I think the videos explain the rest. Oh and if you ask why did they do this? If I have to explain , you wouldnt understand.





Starting Up The Old Caterpillar Sixty
This old 1929 Caterpillar Sixty started a lot easier than I thought it would. I guess not all old machines are cranky. The other crawler seen is a 1952 CAT D4. I didn't get there early enough to catch that one being started. These were seen at the Arizona Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Assc. Show in Apache Junction, AZ on 3-10-12. I also shot video of both of these tractors hooked to the sled in the sled pulling competition, so check them out too.

The first car ever running live! The Benz Motorwagen (1885)
This is rare footage of the world's first car's engine igniting & running. From Wikipedia: After developing a successful gas-powered two-stroke piston engine in 1873, Karl Benz focused on developing a motorized vehicle. His Patent Motorwagen (or Motor Car), introduced in 1886, is widely regarded as the first purpose-built automobile, that is a vehicle designed from the ground up to be motorized. Benz unveiled it officially on July 3, 1886 on the Ringstraße in Mannheim, Germany. The vehicle was patented with German patent number 37435, which Benz applied for on January 29, 1886.

1909 Cadillac First Start in 79 Years
This 1909 Cadillac was stripped down into a speed car, raced and then parked in 1934. I was acquired in the early 1960's for restoration. The restoration was put on hold for many years and then re-started a few years ago. After multple checks of the ignition and timing we finally achieved the first start on July 28, 2012. There is still more to do to tune the engine and sort it out for driving later this year. The spray on the first try happened when we left the primer cups open. It runs better with them closed. And the owner did make it a bit easier by adding an electric starter to the car. For more of the story see the HCCA Gazette, May - June 2009. To see how things turned out, see the related video, 1909 Cadillac first drive at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qEy0KagVrIw
